My 40 year old 'fridge' New to me in 2001. It rattles and makes sounds like a crying puppy. It still freezes meat and keeps the milk cold. Hang in there.
If it ain't broken, don't "fix" it!
You need to replace this with a “more efficient” model that will break down several times and be in the landfill within 7 years
Working in appliance installation for decades, that's what we call it.
Nice Antigua refer xafinity!
My favorite frig’s are the old lever handled round top ones with no interior fan to dry out stuff. Many times these are relegated to the barn. As teens we would sneak ice cold, moisture dripping down the can, cans of beer, er, soda
Fridge. Ice box is understood, but almost archaic.
the insulated box for frozen stuff and ice cubes is called a freezer. Growing up in Colorado, we had a large freezer that sat on the back porch, and got stuffed with seasonal crops at the end of summer or the occasional side of beef, when times were good.
My grandparents, long since departed called the fridge an "ice box", for all the obvious reasons. My parents, also departed, in my experience, lived on the divide of referring to the device as either ice box or fridge. In other company, I could enjoy using a variation of the trucking industry's "reefer"?
Or not. long, long time ago.
How 'bout the term "fridgitater"? One of my kids called it that when he was young.
"Fridge" because the first refrigerator I can remember was a second hand Fridgedaire my dad bought when I was around 5 years old. Mother painted it yellow.
That IS the truth. New ones have weak compressors and weak/buggy electronics, and a buddy's LG refer just died, only 2 years old. Repair bill so high, he just bought a new one. You will pay more for electricity with old ones, but they'll last forever.
Refrigerator, I like extra consonants. This is a Fridge:
THIS is American engineering at its finest. Pretty much got thrown out because people didn’t like the color or wanted a fancier model
Some of the old timers still say "ice box".
Hey, I resemble that remark!
You're right. They left the yellow Fridgedaire when they sold our old house. Dad built a new house in '64 and Mom wanted a new two door GE with the separate self defrosting freezer compartment on top.
Got Ice ?
Yea, Ice box.
Davenport not couch
Pocketbook not purse
Pop not soda
Dial the phone
Don't forget the soda fountain at the drug store.
By default I say "ice box", but I have said "fridge" at times too.
